ew James Bond film No Time To Die is right around the corner, and anticipation for the upcoming film is sky high.

The latest instalment in the long-running spy franchise marks Daniel Craig's fifth and final outing as Bond, while the Oscar-winning Rami Malek will star as a "mysterious villain".

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga is at the helm while Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been drafted in to help write the script.

Despite its delay, the film is set to be released in November.

So, with the new trailer dropping here's everything you need to know about No Time To Die...

When is No Time To Die released in the UK?

The film was originally slated for release on April 2, 2020 in the UK, but due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the date was pushed back to autumn.

In an official statement made on Twitter in March, it was confirmed: "MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of No Time to Die will be postponed until November 2020."

No Time To Die is now hitting cinemas on Thursday, November 12.

Filming for the movie has been taking place in Jamaica and at Pinewood Studios in the UK, as well as in London.

Who is in the cast?

Alongside Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear and Jeffrey Wright are also set to return to the series, with Rami Malek as the Bond villain.

Harris will once again play Moneypenny and Rory Kinnear will again play MI6 chief of staff Bill Tanner.

Léa Seydoux is reprising her role as Madeleine Swann, who starred in 2015's Spectre, while Wright is returning as ex-CIA agent Felix Leiter.

What is the latest Bond film about?

In the film, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica when his old friend from the CIA Felix Leiter, played by Jeffrey Wright, turns up asking for help.

A mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading the spy onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Aside from that, details of the plot are still relatively unknown, with the script being kept under lock and key, although the film is rumoured to focus on genetic engineering.

Who's singing this year's Bond theme?

Billie Eilish provides the film's theme, and as tradition dictates, the song which will play over the film's opening credits.

It’s an understated Bond song, with Eilish’s breathy vocals sitting over brooding strings from composer Hans Zimmer.

It went to number one in the UK charts recently, and should provide an atmospheric start to the new film.

At just 18, Eilish is also the youngest ever artist to provide a song for the franchise.
